Wed 22 June, 10.30-11.30am
Project Room, dlr LexIcon

Free workshop for 3-4 yr olds
Join artist Helen Barry as she explores movement, sound and construction through play and the visual arts.
The idea for ‘Spine’ has come from observing how early years children learn, how and when they respond and how they express themselves through movement from the tops of their heads to the tips of their toes.
Part of the Early Years Co-Commissions funded by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council  and the Arts Council.

Supported by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Childcare Committee.

Mia Gallagher - New Novel

Beautiful Pictures of the Lost Homeland
Congratulations to Mia Gallagher on the publication of her second novel Beautiful Pictures of the Lost Homeland. Mia did a huge amount of work on the novel while working as our dlr/IADT writer in residence during 2009/10.
‘A pitch-perfect rendering of Dublin today and yesterday, a devastating portrait of a family in grief, and a haunting account of the past's pull on the present. As thrilling and inventive, as it is moving and profound.  A major achievement.’ - Paul Murray

Beautiful Pictures of the Lost Homeland is now available from bookshops and your local dlr library.
